show or to live from moscow good to have you with us the u.s. presidential election campaign has been severely disrupted due to the lethal cycloid with rallies canceled and plans for early voting thrown into chaos the storm is said the u.s. east coast are threatening over fifty million people the day is hot thousands of fans old and over two million people across eleven states are now without power artie's marina but ny is in manhattan which is expected to bear the brunt of the severe weather. winds are picking up outside and throughout new york city those that are living abos or to the water are clearly in a bit more danger a lot of things have been closed in new york city including the trains the the buses are not working the tunnels have closed as of this evening the major bridges in new york city will be closed schools are closed at new york stock exchange of
course is close that is monday and tuesday essentially new york city is on lockdown three hundred seventy five thousand people had been encouraged to evacuate if they were living in zones that are close to the water and the winds and heavy rain it will soon be hitting new york city in the fear is that if this water if the surge gets high enough a lower manhattan can be completely flooded and we don't know what kind of effect that will have in that in the days to comment let's remember this election day is a week away u.s. president barack obama and his opponent mitt romney they both have suspended their campaigning events for a monday and tuesday president obama returned to washington d.c. he addressed the nation about the serious weather conditions and told americans that this is a very extreme and would be a serious storm coming to the east coast and everyone should be taking the
circumstance very seriously now on the gallup poll what's interesting is that they have announced that they are suspending their daily election polling due to this hurricane hurricane sandy it's not clear when they will begin pulling again but sandy is likely to affect early voting now early voting typically helps i democrats but we don't know what kind of damage will be caused by next week if the power goes out and millions are affected if towns and cities are flooded how are people going to get to the polls in six or seven days that is the major concern but that's something that we can insist pete and we until we see the outer mass of hurricane sandy which is on its way right now. tom hayden and then to war and civil rights activists believes of the storm could affect the outcome of the election. it's destroying the legitimacy of the election potentially on the east coast. early voting is is is being wiped out in these
cities and states the voting of the elderly on election day the voting of the poor on election day. the the voting of new yorkers on election day is likely to be diminished through no fault of their own. and that will affect the outcome of the election but at the same time as you well know it's extremely possible to manipulate the computers so if it's a close election it will be protested and contested as illegitimate. throughout the presidential race in the us r.t. has been looking at it from different perspectives including that of the occupy movement the election campaign has become the most expensive in the country's history with major corporations pouring billions into both camps and some occupy
activists believe it's wall street which will ultimately win regardless of who's elected independent journalist j a minus in the believe that this will keep the moving growing even when the election is over. the presidential election united states really sucks all of the oxygen out of the room there is essentially no political work that can be done during an election i would say that the many different organizing projects the different. organizers and instrumental motivators and occupy have taken on in this period without you know. actually argue quite well for the future of the movement and there's a moment of political maturation happening among occupiers and i think that. you know occupy wall she was really useful in that it introduced everybody to each other and everyone a common vocabulary and a common conceptual framework for understanding the problems and that people are organizing in solidarity with one another in a in a really promising way but essentially the story of american politics is that it is
completely incapable of reforming it is intransigent it is in the death grip of a system of corporate acquisition and accumulation that it simply cannot get out of . the coverage of the u.s. presidential campaign will continue on and on line all the way up to the vote plus don't miss the final round of the third party candidates debate he get their take on the issues largely ignored by the frontrunners you can watch the debate it's just to be here on our next monday. governor romney and i are we both agree we agree we have to bring the tax rates down i felt the same as the president did governor romney i'm glad. you agree let's come back to something the president i agree on and you tube you agree that the voters have a choice perhaps you wonder who to vote for when romney and obama agree on so many things never you do have other options come november sixth tune in to see the second round of debates between the major third party candidates right here on
r.g.p. . russia's foreign minister has or is ole size in the syrian conflict to engage in dialogue that's after a truce time to coincide with the muslim holiday ended in violence that gay lover all of us speaking after meeting the un's peace envoy in moscow artes you go to peace when all has been following the talks in the russian capital. even though it was supposed to last just four days the ceasefire in syria didn't work and now the question on everybody's lips is what happens next and both russia's foreign minister lavrov and special envoy brahimi are placing their bets on this an even communique which was signed by wall power center by just both sides of the conflict in syria to simultaneously put their weapons down and also for equal pressure to be applied on both of them from the outside but according to russia's foreign minister far from all countries which signed this agreement back in geneva are playing by
the rules that i see in the in the lead so you'd use to russia is probably the only country along those that took part in the geneva talks on the thirtieth of june which negotiates regularly with all sides in the syrian conflict syrian government and all opposition groups with no exceptions because we expect our western partners and partners in the region to do the same they should get used to the idea that without dialogue with the syrian government virtually nothing can be achieved and this is currently a major problem in moving towards a political process in syria internal special envoy brahimi said he is sorry that the ceasefire plan didn't work it was negotiated to take place during the course of the feast of sacrifice was supposed to end today but was in fact broken right on the first day with a deadly blast in damascus then violence continued in different parts of the country throughout the weekend and was told by another deadly explosion in damascus on monday and russia's foreign minister says that with these provocations taking place the syrian government is also making disproportionate responses so mr brahimi
is facing a very tough task finding some sort of a diplomatic solution and more importantly making it work he himself says that your level of distrust between the two sides of the conflict in syria is so high right now it won't even when they begin discussing some sort of obligations each one expects automatically the other one to break its promises. the last day of the syrian cease fire was mobbed by more violence a car bomb ripped through damascus killing ten government jets bombarded the capital suburbs and in etheridge to quell the uprising in the early on my colleague bill daughter talked to dr ali mohammed from the media blog the syria tribe he believes western powers a shouldn't ignore president assad when talking about peace in the country. first of all the present as of the present a lot of syrians and he's obviously a powerful person and he enjoys a lot of support from the people most importantly from the all meucci is an
important player in the struggle of the second of all the players should not dictate the outcome of the struggle before even the negotiations start and so it only makes sense that they should talk to people on the ground. one of the most important ones is freezing the assets about the issue of extremist groups now playing a role in what's happening in syria the international envoy locked up lucky me he acknowledged today that there are all extremist groups there and seemingly not controlled by anybody is peace in syria told achievable when you've got a situation like that we need to look at this in the light of who is sending money and weapons to these extremist groups if turkey manages to cross the borders much more quickly and if the countries that harbor the money and say we're going to extremist groups to stop doing bad things you know we can see this in syria but there's a lot of extremists who are full of hungry and people sending them money and weapons then we should expect peace to be far far. said i had for you this hour others mall

you're watching r.t. good to have you with us for giving some greek debt may be necessary to hold the country's financial freefall that's according to a leaked report compiled by athens european creditors an additional one hundred fifty beltline financial reforms and maybe slapped on the dead read in nation in order to satisfy the lenders financial expert patrick dancers the troika's requests as as realistic as a fairy tale alice in wonderland that fabulous children's book had an alice three mostly saying that sometimes she imagines six impossible things before breakfast while margaret got the troika of lenders and there are a hundred fifty impossible cuts before breakfast for the greek economy look the greeks are in this mess because ultimately they spend huge amounts of money we have terrible sympathy with the ordinary greeks on the street they are being left in a situation where they don't even have primary medical care in many cases but are we going to be able to see them manage to cover the economy or come back in many
different ways of course not they'll be lucky to manage to get twenty of these coach to stick let alone one hundred fifty it's larned alice in wonderland economics quality you impose reforms are slow to catch arning griese was great tax evasion is crippling its recovery effort the journalist who publish a list of the country's top tax dodgers with secret swiss bank accounts is now facing trial cost us about seven s as you release the same information that was given to the greek authorities two years ago by kristen the god who was the french finance minister at the time however the officials chose not to act. on it legal at sped georgia car trouble as says the accusations as should have been investigated. and maybe they could not use it after court exactly because it was not legal. but the quick start investigating these means if they can neglect that so i think it's just an early but i was the only who's in the appendix here to know that john
is that despite of this in this material he's still going after these suspected criminals of the activision they're going after the list it would be agreed to be a lot of differences ago the sentiment of the injustices that are now i would hate to see this in this field is that it would be some subset of this need whedon that the we all face and no actual maybe the use of used would not that is all powerful i know several of them but it could be a food stamp but the numbers for god and justice to go to the political terms. residents of london are protesting against plans to build your obes largest mosque in the heart of the city the opposition group named magaw mosque no thanks to claims the place of worship will turn into a nest of radical islamism artie's polly boycott reports. four times bigger than
some paul's cathedral a mega mosque that will fit ten thousand people and it could be coming to london's east end if it gets the go ahead it's built the river in center will be the same size as london looming but as a power station it would also be the biggest place of worship in the u.k. of any religion but critics have slammed the proposal saying that it would create a muslim pastor in the forces that are still working to bring the largest mosque the u.k. has ever seen into reality revered architects planning consultants and glitzy p.r. teams all paid for by the organization behind the idea to match a group that's causing significant concern is a retreat about all the islamic groups has created ghettos over in toronto you know in canada right there around the world it's a huge group and wherever they go they create barriers they create hostility they
create division they create separatism whether it's on a steaming name the riverine centers website claims there's a demand for a new muslim place of worship in culturally diverse east london not that they're happy to talk about it it's representatives refused to speak to us when we approach the preparers site home to their current mosque it does not want to integrate the grounds on which the trying to set up here in britain and a big way and to the british they are anti worse too but actually they're also anti worldly they're also world but this is not just going to be a more this is going to be a center of training in which to reach out to islam is museums to harden up and maybe evil lies in islam of ordinary muslims in this country and i mean so many muslims don't want that the problem here is that. muslims themselves
are opposing this mosque more on the grounds that they don't want to worship their god but on the grounds that women are allowed the local population of muslim population has no on the side in how the mosque itself is governed or the local authority would say to us is. planning application this is currently being. played pretty poor at this stage in many ways if this went ahead to be like a tipping point. there be no stopping fundamentalist islam if this one goes up happens we all need to leave the country the last one out please turn the lights off while the council ponders campaigners here of all religions say they hope the decision makers choose carefully just today let's set up shop in the british capital. r t east london. where we have more news for you on our website at our t. dot com may include a golden machine a russian cargo ship vanishes at sea world carrying seven hundred tons of precious

the majority of the votes but the exit poll results which came out late on sunday suggested that the opposition parties may be gaining some kind of advantage in the future parliament and in that case things would be looking very grim for the ruling party and for the current president victory on a college because the opposition has been saying all along that it would impeach the president should it get a majority in parliament and why in one way or another but still the biggest intrigue in the future parliament is who the former boxer the former heavyweight champion of the world and his party will be joining in an alliance in the case that the ruling party does not get a complete majority in parliament that it will be could score will be the decisive figure if he decides to join the alliance of the opposition parties which are already signed an agreement to join you in the coalition in the future parliament things would go would go in a very much unpredictable scenario in the ukraine the parliament voting itself according to the domestic and international observers have been more or less free
